This young gryphon has brown wings and a sand-colored body. It is already beginning to fly short distances, and makes screeching sounds when approached too quickly. Becoming more muscled with each passing day, it consumes rather a lot of meat, although now it has become used to hunting on its own, disappearing for long hours and returning sated. This youngling has its first tail feathers and small talons, and already is trying to copy its elders, taking small hops and extending its wings.
Gryphons are noble and majestic creatures, and their eggs are not often come by. Gryphons nest high in mountains, and protect their young fiercely. If an egg is acquired, it was through permission and not theft. These creatures live for hundreds of years, and are wise, powerful beings. If a master is kind and loving enough, a gryphon may even allow them to ride it.
